The little girls in Dreamland are warm and cozy in their new knit dresses! This pattern by Love U Bunches includes two versions of a traditional A-line dress. The first is a short-sleeved dress with a garter stitch neckline. The sleeves and skirt are also edged in garter stitches. The puffy sleeve dress has a smooth neckline. It looks great plain, but it would also look lovely trimmed with some beads or a ribbon flower! If you are an intermediate or advanced knitter, try using different stitches in the dress skirt or a specialty stitch bind off! The options are endless and so much fun!.

The directions were easy to follow. I'm a tight knitter so I used a size up needle and the dress fits her nicely. Thank you
